Coloring Multiple Cards With TPD Stamps

Do you ever create cards in multiples?  I'm doing this increasingly more and more, particularly as I find it quicker and easier to stamp several cards and quickly color them, whether it be to have extras on hand for various occasions, for custom orders or gift giving.  I knocked out this 5 card set in less than 30 minutes, including stamping the inside and stamping the back with my personal logo.  Truth be told, it was probably closer to 20 minutes because  when I get in the zone, things come together quickly!

This project features a sentiment from the new release "Stuck on You" from Two Paper Divas Stamps, and "Tulip Bucket", from their May release.  I love that the sentiment will go with so many of my TPD images.  Each set of tulips has a different color, using my Tombow dual brush markers.  The flowers were watercolored, however the bucket was directly colored with the additional use of my Tombow blender brush. 

I know I've probably mentioned it a bazillion times but you never know who's seeing this for the first time.... to quickly and easily watercolor with Tombows or any water based marker, swipe your marker across an acrylic block or craft mat and spritz with a tiny bit of water.  Use a small paintbrush to transfer your color onto your image or use a water brush.  I use the Tim Holtz detailed NIB water brush to transfer my color.  It's quick and easy and you can vary your color intensity by not spritzing your swiped marker color, but just picking up the direct color with your waterbrush.

To finish off my flowers, I added Stickles glitter glue for some pretty sparkle and a white gel pen for added dimension.

  2. I saw your card on the WAW link up and wanted to pop over and say how pretty they are!
    I almost always create multiples of the cards I make -- I'm part of a card ministry and send a lot of cards, so it just makes more sense!

  3. You’ve done a great job here and created some lovely cards - it is certainly more time effective to make cards in batches like this - especially Christmas cards! Thanks for playing along with our challenge at Simply Papercraft
